Southeast Govs, Leaders Say Separatists Groups Not Speaking For Igbo Nation

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Despite Agitations for secession by some pro-biafran groups, Governors of the Southeast geo-political zone and stakeholders of the zone have reaffirmed the commitment of the region  to one united Nigeria, saying the agitators are not speaking for the Igbo race.

The Igbo leaders, however, condemned in strong terms activities of the  separatists groups in the South East zone.

They emphasised that they strongly believe  in one united Nigeria  anchored on justice, fairness, love and respect for one another.

Addressing newsmen in Enugu at the end of their meeting convened by Chairman of the Southeast Governor’s Forum and governor of Ebobyi State, Chief Dave  Nweze Umahi, the Igbo leaders pleaded with leaders of other zones to note the threats to people of other zones and protect them.

Umahi hinted that the strategic meeting also condemned killings of security operatives and civilians in the zone and other zones and urged security people to discharge their responsibilities within the rules of engagement.

According to Umahi, the meeting requested National Assembly members from the Southeast to support the creation of state police in the ongoing constitutional amendment.

 He said “We Igbos do reaffirm  our commitment  to  a united Nigeria under a platform  of justice, equality  fairness love and respect  for one another

“We fairly  promise  to protect everyone either from other region or another regions living in our places

“We condemned in totality the activities of private secessionist group in southeast, we firmly proposed  that we do not  support them, they do not speak for southeast the impression that Southeast  leaders are silent over some of our youths agitation  for succession are not correct.
